The Web Accessibility Initiative developed the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) to provide a single standard for web content accessibility that meets the needs of individuals with disabilities.
Accessibility is a function of Universal Design, or the degree to which a product, device, service, or environment is available to as many people as possible. When applied to software, accessibility focuses on the right of people with disabilities or special needs to a system, often through use of assistive technology such as screen readers. Screen readers are software programs that allow blind or visually impaired users to read the text that is displayed on the computer screen with a speech synthesizer or braille display.
One of the ways Issuetrak helps you meet accessibility standards is by providing a series of optional accessibility settings to work with screen readers.
